Most of the people start from a scratch, and only a few people are there who are born with a silver spoon in the mouth. Most of the celebrities of the tinsel town whom we adore on the screen too started their journey on a rough path. And today when we see them win so many awards and earn so much money we get an idea that how hard and dedicatedly they had worked to earn so much respect and money. When we look at the first amount that they earned one thing gets crystal clear that they too were a part of us and today due to their sheer persistence they are touching heights. Today they do a lot of welfare work but back then when they started then too they had a heart of gold and that is why till today they are connected to their roots.
The way they spend their first salary will surely touch your heart.
Shah Rukh Khan
He is the super rocking khan of today’s time, but you will be very surprised to know that his first salary was fifty rupees. When nobody knew him, he worked as an usher at a Pankaj Udaas concert, and he used the money to travel to Agra to see the majestic Taj Mahal. Today he is like a king in many terms, but back then the scenario was very different.
His acting skills are matchless. He did not start his career as an actor but instead as a teacher. He taught students and gave them home tuitions, and for that, he charged rupees twenty-five and when he received his first salary he bought a cycle so that he could travel quickly.
Most of the versatile actors whom we see act today did not start off as actors but did odd jobs and then became stars and Kalki is one of them. When she lived in London, she started working as a waitress, and her first salary was forty pounds which are approximately three thousand four hundred according to today’s value. She used that money to pay her house rent.
Her film career started with the movie Black. Although not as an actress but as an assistant director. She earned rupees three thousand and she used that money for her transportation expense. Before that when she was in Singapore she worked as a waitress.
Today she is a global star. But her career started when she was seventeen years old and she was felicitated with the Miss World crown and with that she was given a cheque for five thousand rupees. That was her first salary, and she gave it to her mother.
He started his career in Bollywood as an assistant director, and he was lucky enough as he earned a good amount of thirty-five thousand. Just like Priyanka he too gave all the money to his parents, and in return, they opened his bank account and deposited all the money in his account.
Due to Rakesh Roshan, he got his first break at the age of six, and he acted in a 1980 movie named “Aasha.” You might not recognize this movie, but one song of this movie Sheesha Ho Ya Dil Ho sung by Lata Mangeshkar is very famous. He earned rupees hundred as his first, and he spent all the money in buying toys for himself.
She is a multi-faceted actress. She started working from the age of twelve as a child actress in Doordarshan, and she earned two hundred rupees and a saree. Like a daddy’s princess, she gave everything to her father.
He started off with a one thousand rupees and gave it to his mother. And today he has the power to turn his movies into commercially successful which results in millions and millions of money.
Like Kalki, Randeep too worked in a Chinese restaurant in Austraila. There he earned eight dollars per hour and 1.3 dollars per delivery. In addition to this he also washed cars and earned forty dollars per wash, and he used his salary to buy beer.
